5 best Hump Day movies on Amazon Prime for Nov. 10, 2021

Mrs. Doubtfire

If you need a comedy to get you through your Hump Day, Mrs. Doubtfire will be an excellent movie to watch. This movie is based on the novel Alias Madame Doubtfire by Anne Fine. Starring the comedic genius of Robin Williams, how can you go wrong?

Williams plays Daniel, a freelance voice actor and devoted father. His wife Miranda (Sally Field) is less than pleased about his carefree lifestyle. She wants him to be more responsible, but Daniel’s way of life is much less strict than his wife’s. They divorce, and Daniel struggles to do what needs to be done to get custody of his children. When his wife decides to hire a housekeeper, Daniel uses his vocal skills and his brother Frank’s make-up artist skills to create Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire.

It is an outstanding movie and fun for the whole family.

Born on the Fourth of July

In 1989 the anti-war film Born of the Fourth of July was released to critical and commercial success. The film is based on an autobiographical novel by Ron Kovic and directed by Oliver Stone. This is the second film in Stone’s trilogy of Vietnam War films, including Platoon and Heaven & Earth.

Vanity Fair

The historical drama, Vanity Fair, was released in 2004 and is adapted from  William Makepeace Thackeray’s 1848  novel. This novel has had several adaptations; this one particular one, directed by Mira Nair, made significant changes to the mani character Becky Sharp, portrayed by Reese Witherspoon. Nair brought in Julian Fellows, of Downton Abbey fame, to write the screenplay.

Becky was born to poor parents, and after finishing classes at boarding school, she took a position as a governess for the Crawley family. She always had aspirations of being part of England’s upper classes and fell in love with the Crawley’s son Rawdon (James Purefoy). Things go well until Crawley’s fortune begins to dwindle. Becky then seeks support from the Marquess of Steyne (Gabriel Byrne), who becomes her patron, giving her money and bringing her into the lavish life of London’s high society.
